Pretty Easter Things

Hobby Lobby had Easter items 1/2 off last week~~
bought some pretty faux dogwood flower branch and two adorable vintage~style Easter egg~shaped plates:  pictured one of them today~~

These old cardboard photo frames I had bought recently~~
inserted some scrap~book papers with pretty prints to use in my baskets and vignettes:

They will look sweet stacked together loosely; placed in cloches or on platters for a backdrop:

I've had this oval wreath a long time; it comes in handy for sweet vignettes of all seasons~~

Well, I had to show off that darling pitcher~~ I bought this in January; a little splurge for a Sadek item; I love the green color on white background and looks vintage~toile~like.

Here's a close~up of some "vintage~looking" scrap~book paper with the old cardboard frame:
kinda romantic just lying on a doily with faux flowers tied with grosgrain ribbon.

I'm posting more every day this week; weatherman promises more sunshine tomorrow so I should get some good pictures of my recent bargains.  I can't wait til you see them!  There are some decorating ideas I'd love to share with you and get your opinions~~

See you tomorrow!

Linking up this week:

  8. You have some lovely Easter treasures, Patty. It's so fun pulling together our favorite things and then adding some new finds to embellish each season. Your vignettes are so pretty!

  9. What sweet vignettes! When I saw the one with all the adorable chicks, I instantly thought of my childhood. Each Easter, my dad would present my four sisters and me with little live chicks. We would keep them as pets, until they got too large to keep in town, and then we would take them to my uncle's farm.

    Thanks so much for linking to the party. I love having you join me.

    Have a wonderful weekend!
